Churn Barn is just an utterly incredible place! Its amazingly spacious accommodation includes a magnificent lounge and staircase, large 'state of the art' kitchen, super bedrooms and classy bathrooms. Beamed ceilings, oak floors and quality furniture go without saying and of course there is the large secure patio and garden. This must be one of the most spacious holiday homes in the Peak District!
Set on the hillside above Chinley Village, the barn backs onto Cracken Edge and has wonderful views out across the valley. A short half mile stroll will take you down into the village where there is the super Old Hall Inn and proper local shops. Walks and cycle ways radiate from the cottage and there are numerous places to visit in the surrounding hills. How about Peveril Castle, Whaley Bridge canal basin, the beautiful Goyt Valley, lovely Lyme Hall and New Mills' incredible Millennium Walkway?
With wider horizons all of Derbyshire's attractions are within easy reach but there are numerous contrasts in just this part of the national park. Castleton's Blue John caverns, Buxton's magnificent Opera House, the Dambuster Dams and the wild moorlands of Kinder Scout to name but a few. Spot the white hares on Kinder if you are really lucky!
